Horrific! 18 year old girl gets burnt and dies while trying to take selfie

An 18 year old Romanian, Anna Ursu, has died from severe burns sustained after touching a live wire while trying to take a “Selfie” at the roof of a train. The teenager and her friend went to a train station in the Northeastern part of the country, to take a photograph she intended to post on Facebook.

While trying to take the picture as she laid on top of the train and stuck one of her legs in the air, an electrical field surrounding the overhead cables sent 27,000 volts through her body. As she burst into flames, a passer-by who saw the horrific accident risked his own life by scrambling on top of the carriage to extinguish the girl’s burning clothes before phoning the emergency services.

Love Clinic: The story of Nicholas and Ruth

Going through the lyrics of the song "Everything I do (I do it for you)" By "Bryan Adams"... ' don't tell me it not worth dying for, cause I can't help it, there is nothing I want more. That should be one line most of us should cling on to as we journey on in the search and conquest of true love. As it reminds me of a story.

This story starts as all stories do "Once upon a time":

There was a young boy named Nicholas, Who had an Inamorata called Ruth. This two were so much in Love with each other that even strangers could feel the Love and attraction between them. They were in the University by then, and they had vowed to marry each other.

Their Love was so inveterate. Almost everyone in the School knew of a legendary love that knows no bounds. All and sundry prayed for a Love like theirs. Anytime they were asked the secret of their Love, they will say Love Ke!! The real Love is just incipient. That was just a tip, wait till we get married. continue...

Love Clinic: Unconditional Love over bounds and boundaries

Looking back at the History of South Africa, I remember the quote of the Dalai Lama "We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection."

South Africa went through a tough years of Apartheid and slavery, but one thing that saved them was the Love and Sacrifice of one great man ' Nelson Mandela'. I wonder what this man would say if he were to be alive at this Xenophobic times. If South Africa is the one doing this to other citizens, then their Apathy fight then was mere fallacy for they fought against then what they are doing now.

 I wonder what would be going through the citizens who have married foreigners, Will they also call for their spouses to be killed? Obviously no they won't. This has to do with the Love they have for each other which I suppose is Unconditional and uncompromising. Why can't we all extend this kind of love to one another. continue...
